ESTABLISHED A. N. 1720.
No. 7 Royal Exchange, Cornhill,
HEAD AGENCY OFFICE,
56 St. Francois Xavier Street,
$150,000 INVESTED IN GOVERNMENT SECURITIES,
IN CONFORMITY WITH THE ACT OF PARLIAMENT.
INSURANCE against LOSS BY FIRE effected on the most favorable terms.
The Corporation has granted Assurances on Lives for nearly a CENTURY AND A HALF, having issued its First Policy on the 7th June, 1721.
Two-thirds of the entire Profits, WITHOUT ANY DEDUCTION FOR EXPENSES OR MANAGEMENT, are allotted to the Assured. This arrangement will be found to be more advantageous to the Policy-holders than an apparently larger proportion of the Profits, subject to the expenses of management. The profits are declared at the end of every five years, and the share of the Policy-holders may be appropriated either in increase of the Sum Assured, or as an immediate Cash payment.
